Inside The Wilk In Prince Edward County, A Hip Mid-Century Modern Getaway

“Escape to the County” (yes, County not country) is an expression rolling off the tongues of many urbanities as Prince Edward County — a community located roughly two hours outside of Toronto — continues to draw visitors in droves. The area is home to countless wineries, restaurants and the Insta-famous Drake Devonshire Inn; even Prince Charles, Camilla, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Justin Trudeau have flocked to PEC. Vogue affectionately nicknamed PEC ‘The Hudson Valley of Canada’ in an article last summer.

If you’re looking for a cool spot to stay in the County we’re eyeing The Wilk, a charming farmhouse built in the 1850s that was recently revived with a helping of hip mid-century modern style. We caught up with The Wilk’s owners, Jaime Kowal and Aaron David, to hear the story behind their cool-as-can-be Airbnb.
